At a time when there’s much ado about statues of slave traders, here’s a statue of a Good Man, sitting outside the building he is most famous for.
About the Foundling MuseumThe Foundling Museum tells the story of the Foundling Hospital, Britain's first home for abandoned children.
The museum houses a nationally important art collection as well as the world's largest privately amassed collection of Handel memorabilia.
The museum examines the work of the Foundling Hospital's founder Thomas Coram, as well as the artist William Hogarth and the composer George Frideric Handel, both major benefactors of the institution.
It also illustrates how the Foundling Hospital's charity work for children still carries on today through the child care organisation Coram.
IMPORTANT - Although venues are reopening, their hours may differ from normal, and most now need prebooking before you visit.
